Ususi Reiki - Usui Shiki Ryoho
What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese word which means “Universal Life Force Energy” or a mysterious, ethereal and sacred energy of heaven and earth, that is, of the universe that sustains all life. Reiki Ryoho (pron. Ray-key Ree-oh-hoh), means Reiki therapy or Reiki Healing Art. Reiki was realised on Mt Kurama by Mikao Usui in 1922. Through Mikao Usui, Reiki therapy has spread all over the world, bringing wellness & providing comfort to all who receive including patients in palliative care
Reiki is a Japanese word, which means . This energy, Ki, is similar to the Chi or Qi referred to in China, the Prana of India, or the Mana of Hawaii, and has been used for centuries for healing, and bringin g the body, mind & soulback into balance. The energy was also used and experimented with, by such doctors, scientists & scholars as Pythagoras, Hippocrates, Paracelsus, Mesmer, Reichenbach, Quimby and Edgar Cayce, to name but a few, but was known under several different names.
Reiki is safe, natural form of hands on healing, which promotes healing on a mental, physical, emotional and spiritual level.
Reiki was re-discovered by Mikao Usui, a Japanese healer, in March 1922, and is now a widely accepted form of natural alternative healing. Healing is not the popular conception of removal of symptoms. Healing is full and complete resolution of the causes of the dis-ease. Healing is returning to a state of alignment with your Higher Self or true way of being. Reiki also works well with conventional medical treatments.
Reiki is based on the premise that universal energy flows through all living things. When blockages occur, this energy cannot flow freely through the body resulting in a range of disorders – emotional, physical and spiritual.Using the traditional Usui method, Reiki life energy is channeled through the hands to the client whilst you are fully clothed. You may experience the transfer of the Reiki energy as a warm tingling sensation. Distant healing can also be done by a Level 2 Reiki practitioner or higher, who is trained to do so. There are many applications for this form of natural therapy. Once attuned you can channel this energy to heal yourself, others, your pets, plants, situations and even the planet!

Komyo ReikiDo (pronounced Koh-m-yoh Ray-key Do) was developed by Japanese Buddhist Monk, Japanese Usui Reiki Master and renown international teacher, Hyakuten Inamoto. Komyo ReikiDo is a keep-it-simple Reiki system & practice, based on the Japanese aesthetic of Less is More. The practice motto is: Place your hands, Surrender & Smile. Simple to learn & profound in the effect on mind, body & inner being.
In 2017 Carol attended a Komyo ReikiDo Workshop with Japanese Reiki Master Hyakuten Inamoto and was trained in Level 1, 2 and Master/Teacher. She is now certified to teach this style of Reiki too. Although this style of Reiki still uses the same Lif-Force Energy as Usui Reiki, there is a more Japanes flavour to the workshops. Carol will be teaching Komyo ReikiDo Workshops in 2021 to Reiki Level 2 and Master students.
Komyo = Light or illumination
Reiki = Sacred Energy of the Universe
Do = Spiritual Path or Way
Seichim / SKHM / All-Love
What is SEICHIM/SEICHEM/SKHM/ALL LOVE?
Seichim/SKHM is an Egyptian form of hands-on-healing that was re-discovered by Patrick Ziegler in 1980 while spending a night in the King’s sarcophagus in the pyramid of Giza. Seichim is a gentle form of healing which works more on the mental/emotional level.
There are a variety of names used to describe this energy, and each system has a different means of accessing the energy. It is known as Seichim, Sekhem, Seichem, and SKHM. There are other variants such as Isis Seichim, and Archangelic Seichim.
Seichim is “Living Light Energy”, as well as an ancient Egyptian system of healing wisdom. It is thought that Seichim first appeared in Egypt over 5,000 years ago, re-appeared in Southern India, and also in Tibet. Seichem is also another word representing Seichim.
SKHM is generally accepted as the more correct phonetic Egyptian pronunciation of the Seichim energy. Patrick himself talks about using the Seichim energy, but later changed his system to SKHM, because it appears to be more of an Egyptian way to write the word, using no vowels. He currently teaches a workshop called “All Love”, which I have attended and also hosted in Dubbo, where I run my business. This workshop uses the energy for deep transformational work, and can be done either in groups or with the individual.
Whether it is referred to as Seichim, Seichem, Sekhem, SKHM or All Love, all are manifestations of “Living Light Energy”. Some believe that SKHM is an Ancient system of healing wisdom from the Temples of Egypt.
Where Reiki is often referred to as the “Great Beaming Light”, Seichim is often referred to as the “Rainbow” becausae of it’s gentler, and more feminine effect.
ALL-LOVE – Where There is Love, Everything is Possible
Patrick Zeigler has evolved the Seichim System into what he currently teaches as ALL LOVE, an Spiritual type of Emotional Release Technique, using meditation, sound, and the same Seichim (SKHM) energy in his classes.
Just like Reiki, All Love connects with Source, to establish a healing in the Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual bodies. The Energy is used to heal and to stimulate the personal development to reach ones true purpose. The aspect of unconditional love is very present and can not be compared with any other energy.
All Love is more of a “group oriented” energy and one of the great aspects is, that it seems to support your development and takes you to new insights and usage of this energy. This is probably the reason why the system is adapted and changed along the way by the people who used the energy. SEICHIM was the original name given to the system and SEICHIM has gone through a few developments along the way since the rediscovery of the energy by Patrick Zeigler in 1980. Now there is; Isis Seichim, Seichem, Seichim, Sekhem, SKHM and All Love.
Carol was first initiated into Seichim in 1999 when participating in her Reiki and Seichim Master’s Training, then went on to train with Patrick himself in 2005, 2007, 2010 and 2014 when he also cane to Dubbo several times to run workshops.
Carol now also conducts these workshops along with her regular Reiki Classes, and sometimes includes them as part of the Reiki training for her students.
What is Theta Healing Therapy?
Theta healing is a process of meditation that was developed by spiritual teacher and healer Vianna Stibal in 1995 to teach people to develop their natural intuition by changing the brain wave cycle to the more relaxed theta waves for the intention of exploring how emotional energy is affecting a person’s health.
Theta healing identifies the causes of blockages to the natural functioning of the person, like belief systems, repressed emotions, fears, traumas, and genetic defects. These blockages impacts the flow of infinite spiritual energy by limiting it. The therapy allows the person to look for those blocks or obstacles, and connect to the highest source to release the subconscious core beliefs and blocks on all four levels – core, genetic, past life, and soul.
Different Theta Healing Techniques
By working with a theta healing practitioner, it becomes possible to clarify, energise, and focus on your goals and desires, and change programs that you feel are holding you back from achieving all that you are able to.
The theta healing technique is a powerful tool that can rapidly take both the practitioner and the client to the theta level of brainwave activity – this level is where a very deep state of relaxation is occurring. The name of Theta healing is taken from the theta brainwave, which vibrates at four to seven cycles per second. This is the state that an individual is in at night when first started dreaming, and also when in deep hypnosis or gaining a profound sense of oneness with nature. During this state, the person has an easy access to the contents of their subconscious and also becomes more connected to the life energy of the universe.
The following are the basic processes used in theta healing. Energetic testing is used to identify subconscious limiting beliefs, through muscle testing of the body. Then, meditation is performed to ground the energy. Thirdly, the practitioner or the client will enter into the conscious theta brainwave and travel energetically to the creative energy source in the universe. Next, a command to change is given to the client’s subconscious beliefs, knowledge, feelings, or health state, being careful to use the appropriate positive phrasing. And lastly, the transformation of the subconscious is starting to take place.
It should be remembered that the theta healing session has no side effects and does not cause healing crisis. Also, the feeling or symptoms should not get worse before they start getting better.
How does Theta Healing Work?
Usually, Theta healing is administered in the form of individual sessions in which the certified practitioner sits directly opposite the client, and attends initially to the person by listening, using intuitive senses like probing questions and empathy. It is based on the theory the beliefs in the conscious and unconscious mind of the person can directly impact their emotional well-being, which in turn may also impact their physical health. A method of meditation is used by the practitioner to tune into a person’s energy with the goal to improve their health and general well-being by freeing the negative experiences that are blocking thought patterns or genetically inherited patterns in an attempt to create a positive emotional wellbeing. It is also used in conjunction with conventional medicine.
Theta Healing Benefits
Theta healing can be used to help and support the healing of various physical and emotional conditions such as:
- chronic, degenerative and DNA-related conditions
- emotional distress
- relationship patterns that keep on repeating themselves
- low self-esteem
- patterns of self-sabotage
In addition, it can be used to change the client’s negative core beliefs. It can be used to remove the negative attached energies and entities from people, houses, the land, and living spaces.
